New heads of Nagorno-Karabakh communities consider water supply problems as priority


Elected heads of the villages of Nor Kazanchi and Tsakhkashat told the “Caucasian Knot” that the problems of water supply and repair of houses damaged during the autumn war have not been resolved in the communities.

The “Caucasian Knot” has reported that on October 10, four communities of Nagorno-Karabakh held elections for heads of communities and the Council of Elders in one village. Residents of the village of Nor Kazanchi in the Martakert District, located a kilometre from the Azerbaijani military posts, expressed their hope that after the election of the community head, two main problems will be solved, that is, water supply and security.

Ruslan Arustamyan, the newly elected head of the Nor Kazanchi community, intends to submit to the government of Nagorno-Karabakh a programme for the improvement and development of the village. He told the “Caucasian Knot” correspondent that the community should be provided with drinking water supply, rural roads need to be repaired, and residents need a kindergarten and repair of houses damaged during the war.

“The problem of village safety is no less important. During the war, the village of Nor Kazanchi became a borderline. After the murder of a tractor driver in Martakert, the problem of safety of work in the field has been acute. I intend to appeal to the authorities and Russian peacekeepers to strengthen the protection of rural workers in the field,” Ruslan Arustamyan said.

Suren Sargsyan, the newly elected head of the Tsakhkashat community, says that the problem of residents’ safety is not on the agenda. “However, we have a number of unresolved social problems. They include the repair of residential buildings that were damaged during the war or fell into disrepair. We also have problems with water supply: all communications have been installed in our village, water is still not supplied,” Suren Sargsyan told the “Caucasian Knot” correspondent.
